Controversial Rolling Stone Magazine Issue Sees Spike in Sales

The controversial issue of "Rolling Stone" magazine, with the alleged Boston bomber on the front cover, has seen sales double. Sales are up one hundred two percent for the August 1st issue from the same time one year ago. The issue was pulled from newsstands at many stores, including Wegmans and Tops, and inspired many debates on radio and television.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is featured on the cover, with an article chronicling his transformation into a radical Muslim. Three people were killed when a bomb blew up near the finish line of the Boston Marathon in April.
